Lecture on Why We Love Natural Beauty by Dr. David Lee. Dr. David Lee, will be speaking to the community
regarding the subject of how science and the arts interact. Dr. Lee was a professor at FIU for over thirty years teaching Biology and is now a
Professor Emeritus with the university. Dr. Lee will be discussing how our value of nature is at the heart of the environmental crisis, which may
worsen as we grow more and more alienated from nature in our daily life. The lecture will also address how the arts (literature, music and visual)
may be our most effective tools in fostering an emotional relationship to nature.

Tropical Botanic Garden, the chamber music ensemble Sixth Floor Trio takes up
residence from January 6 – 19, 2014 for the second GardenMusic Festival with a full

and musical styles.
The Sixth Floor Trio – Teddy Abrams, Harrison Hollingsworth, and Johnny Teyssier
– and the 2014 GardenMusic guest artists will perform boundary-blasting programs that
range from jazz and classical to traditional folk, Broadway and Latin jazz. Four evening
performances, each creatively programmed around a unique theme, complemented by an
evening of Broadway and a Children’s concert, will round out this year’s Festival.
“Our aim is to pair one of Miami’s most beautiful settings with world-class musicmaking,
bringing together tremendously talented and engaging musicians from around
the world in a schedule of programs that cross the spectrum of time and musical styles,”

beautifully-curated journey of virtuosity and artistry.

Many of the great classical works now considered standards caused riots and scandals in
their time; this concert will present brilliant music that inspired audiences to listen in new

the program will also feature a collaboration with the Miami Beach-raised award winning
visual artist Michele Oka-Doner and a world premiere by GardenMusic resident

* Sunday, Jan. 19, 7pm A Jazzy Night This program celebrates the intersection of the

to enjoy amongst the backdrop of Fairchild on a Florida winter’s night. The inaugural
event brimmed over with all types of musical celebrations. Four full concerts in addition
to many short-form concerts and open rehearsals were performed, along with children’s
concert with a unique instrument petting zoo. Two original works commissioned
specifically for the festival debuted. Actors from the City Theatre and choreographers
from Miami Contemporary Dance Company joined the musicians for a staged production

My Lips Are Sealed
Time: Present time, Q&A segment of the final workshop
Place: Any space equiped to hold a Vagina Convention
Advisor: Gail Garrisan
Stage Manager: Sahid Arnaud Pabon
They say to write what you are passionate about and in this time of my life… its vagi-nas. Not the vagina itself (though it is beauti-ful) I’m more interested in what she stands for, her voice or shall we say her lack of one. I am proud to be a woman in this day in age, now if only society would let me be the God-dess I really am! We are all born with happy little clams and unfortunately as we grow up that clam sometimes can decide to close up on us for various reasons. Why does that happen? What in our past silences our voice!? How can we move forward and allow her to speak again? China doesn’t know all the answers but what she might know is a key for further understanding. China has a gift, she is a vagina whisper and you’d be shocked if you could hear what she hears (or can’t hear)! And like many she wants the same, to find your inner beauty (literally) and to be HEARD!
I would first like to thank all the miraculous and inspirational women in my life: My mother Michelle, Terry Nicolini, Gail Garrisan, Patrice Bailey, Natalia Hunt, Estela Vrancovich, Felicia Kurtz, Barb, Pam, Ashley, Alyssa, and Gerardo! To the ever so handsome Sahid for stepping in so open armed, you’re the sweetest! To Mark for being a lifesaver and for making me “google dat shit”! Thank you to my family for their never ending support and loving me for who I am. Especially to my father who accepts the fact I need to talk about vaginas in public! To my Honeybadgers of 2013- I can’t be-lieve this is OUR year! I love you guys truly and deeply! Finally to China, I hope after this you can see how beautiful you truly are! Inside and out! Go get’em Kitty!
P.s- No need to point my feet Mom!
This show is for Kalea and for EVERY woman who has ever felt less than they are!
Audience participation is encouraged!

Norton Highlights British Fashion and Design During WWII with
Keep Calm and Carry On: World War II and the British Home Front, 1938-1951
West Palm Beach, FL (Sept. 18, 2012) –When the British government produced the poster “Keep Calm and Carry On” in 1939, it was a rallying cry for the public, and a demonstration of a new collaboration between the government and the creative class. The Norton Museum of Art opens its special exhibition season exploring the ways in which artists, designers, architects, and filmmakers in Great Britain bolstered a nation and helped win the war on the home front. Keep Calm and Carry On: World War II and the British Home Front, 1938-1951, opens Nov. 1, 2012 and runs through Jan. 20, 2013. (Companion programming includes the four-part series, Keep Calm and Carry On: British Films with Scott Eyman. Eyman, literary critic and arts writer for The Palm Beach Post, is a noted film historian and author.)
“Virtually every member of England's creative class, from fashion designer Hardy Amies to arts leader Kenneth Clark and writer Noel Coward, helped fight the war at home, not only by creating innovative designs that saved essential wartime materials, but also by injecting style, beauty, and high culture into the harsh realities of wartime life," said Donald Albrecht, curator of the exhibition, who will provide insight during a discussion at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 29 (Barry Day, a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts and Trustee of the Noel Coward Foundation will discuss growing up in England during the Blitz at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013.)
Keep Calm and Carry On examines design between 1938 and 1951, the years immediately before, during, and after England’s participation in the war. The exhibition is divided into three sections:
• Design for Fashion and Beauty, which features women’s dresses—some by couturier to the royal family Hardy Amies—and uniforms from the era, a clothing rations book, and copies of British Vogue.
• Design for Shelter and Protection, which highlights air-raid shelter designs and drawings, and domestic objects, including utility furniture.
• Design for Entertainment and Propaganda, which demonstrates the ways graphic designers and filmmakers shaped the nation’s behaviors and attitudes from encouraging women to enter the workforce and plant victory gardens to imploring everyone to “keep calm and carry on.”
For greater context of the social, cultural, and political dimensions of the struggles on the home front, the exhibition will include clips from films and radio programs that were popular during the era. Vintage photographs also will help visitors understand what daily life on the home front looked like.
The exhibition will begin with the preparations for war in 1938 and will end with a coda devoted to the major design events in the years directly following the war that were pivotal in Britain’s conversion from a wartime nation to a peacetime nation. Included are objects and images from the 1946 Britain Can Make It exhibition at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, the 1948 Olympics, the 1948 Earl’s Court Auto Show, and the 1951 Festival of Britain, a government organized exhibition that highlighted Britain’s contributions to industrial design, architecture, science, technology, and the arts.
“The Norton exhibition will continue to explore the ideas and work presented in the MFA Boston’s excellent, focused exhibition Beauty as Duty: Textiles and the Home Front in WWII Britain,” said Norton Executive Director Hope Alswang. “World War II and the austerity measures that came along with it were pivotal in ushering a new era of modernism in Great Britain. The British creative class came together to support the war effort, unify the nation, and maintain morale, and, in the process, created a more egalitarian society. It’s been a fascinating road of discovery and we’re eager to share our new knowledge with our visitors.”
